The Golden Rule
I always believed that The Golden Rule (wikipedia link)---treat others the way you want to be treated--- is a good way to run my professional life. I have tried, and of course sometimes failed.
But it's not so simple, anyway. The real issue is that the way I want to be treated is not the same way that others want to be treated. Conflict therefore is unavoidable. Then what to do?
A corollary: People you think of as jerks generally don't view themselves as jerks.
